The Best Affordable Graphics Tablets List

THANKS FOR STOPPING BY, UNFORTUNATELY MY COMPUTER DIED ON ME AS I WAS PLANNING MORE UPDATES. WILL GET TO THEM AS SOON AS I CAN!

Hello,

Welcome to the Affordable Graphic Tablets page! 

Thanks for stopping by!

If you’re looking for a little more “umph” check out the new Best Affordable Cintiq Alternatives Page!

This used to be a page titled, 5 Best Affordable Graphics Tablets, but I’ve chosen to expand the purpose of this page to the Best Affordable Graphics Tablets on the market. Why? Well for a variety of reasons. When I first started this website, to be honest, my main goal was to make some extra income and honestly that’s still one of my goals, but now I definitely see the benefit in offering  the best valued information I possibly can in order to better assist my fellow artists, hobbyists, students, etc. Generally I will provide links to Affordable Graphics Tablets on Amazon and list them on this page according to prices on Amazon. I do receive a commission, but it’s no extra charge to you. You can, of course, go elsewhere to purchase these tablets, but Amazon provides trusted online service to millions of customers every year, including myself. For this reason I stand by them.

So why spend time at TheBestGraphicsTablets’ Affordable Graphic Tablets page now?

You may be a student looking for an affordable Wacom alternative and you’re tired of some of the Wacom bias out there in the graphic tablet review world.

You may be a parent looking for an affordable but fairly reliable tablet for your creative child.

Or you may be a hobbyist looking to do some digital illustration, webcomics, etc with a limited budget.

What you will find on this page

  1. A list of Graphic Tablets generally sold under or just over $150.00 around the web. Although keep in mind the vendors of these products are liable to change the prices. However, I try to stay up to date on new tablets and prices as time allows.
  2. The structure of these reviews will be given in a  quick pro vs con breakdown for tablets I have not personally used. For tablets and graphic monitors I have personally used a link will be provided for a detailed review I have done for those devices. While it is my ultimate aim to be able to gain as much information about graphic tablets and graphic monitors, I will only provide detailed reviews for tablets I actually used. Everything else is a summation of reviews around the Web.
  3. A  List of the Affordable Tablets I have used and my personal recommendations will be given following this. This replaces the best affordable tablets of the year.

 Affordable Tablets I have used:

IntousPenandTouchSmall

  1. Wacom Intous Pen & Touch Small: The Wacom Intous Pen & Touch Small tablet has a variety of selections. A version that ships with Manga and Anime Studio software, a version without touch technology and a version with touch technology. Please see a more personal partial-hybrid review here.TurcomTS6580
  2. Turcom TS-6580 (White) and Turcom TS-6580B (Black): The Turcom Pen Sketch TS-6580 comes in black and white. The black TS-6580b has been one of the more popular purchases through my articles here. One word of caution: For some reason the sellers on Amazon have decided to list the TS-6580 as a Touch Tablet. IT IS NOT A TOUCH TABLET! However, it is still a good affordable tablet. Hands on, personal review available, click here!

Recommendations

 

HuionH610image

  1. Huion H610 Pro Graphics Drawing Pen Tablet: Other than the Tucom TS6580b, it’s one of the more affordable and popular Wacom alternatives on the market. Please see a more detailed review summation here.

 Ultimate List of Affordable Graphics Tablets Under $100.00/$150.00 as of 2015

The following list is a compilation and quick pro vs con summation of various reviews and tablets found mostly over at Amazon. The following list is not meant to be an exhaustive or fully complete list. It’s not meant to be complete mini reviews of each tablet listed, but the list is designed to give you a quick comparative look at various low priced tablets on the market. Low priced, again with the goal of the price listed under $100 or no more than $150.00. Also, the list does not and will not include the tablets I have personally used nor personal recommendations above.

As of 10/4/2016 I have redone this list to do away with the table in  hopes it would function better on smaller devices.

The list is organized according to manufacturer. You can access by the following manufacturer links or simply scroll down the page.

  • Cursor sticking to the internal edges of the monitor screen while attempting to use software.
  • Some people have had some major problems installing it on various OS platforms ranging from Windows to Mac OS’s.

Stylus/Pen: 1 AAA battery
O/S Compatibility: according to Turcom it is compatible only with Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7 although they have drivers on their site up to Windows 10. Use with Operating Systems beyond Windows 7 at your own risk. One user claims to have used it with Windows 8.

  • Durability and long use – one user used it for 3+ years.
CONS
  • Small work area.
  • Can be jittery when drawing straight lines or perfect circles, however I’ve personally seen this happen with a lot of tablets, including Wacom. So I suspect this may be a bigger issue with the TS-6251 since it was a particular point a user made. For this reason several users only recommend it for digital painting instead of using it for clean line art.
  • It is an older tablet on the market, may not be compatible with a lot of new technologies on the rise.
  • Buggy with Windows 8 and beyond.
  • Flimsy stylus pen, it broke according to several users.

  2. Hi there!
    I’ve been searching around for graphics tablets, and it looks like most of them have a lot of the same bells and whistles. I don’t need anything fancy, I just want something that I can rest assured will work well for a good time and has a decent size active area (maybe at least 8 or 10 inches width). Pressure sensitivity and all that isn’t really important to me, and I’d like to stay around $50 or less. I’m also a lefty, which I suppose plays into some of them.

    It’s looking to me like Ugee, Turcom, and Monoprice are the ones for me to be looking at, but there are still so many different ones! Do you have any suggestions from those?

    Thanks!

    • Sam,

      Thanks for commenting. Sorry for the late reply. I have used all three. I had no problems with Turcom and I’m currently using Ugee’s graphic display monitor and I have no problems with it. This is not to say there aren’t issues one may have to work around using them nor were there minor issues I had to work around. They just weren’t gigantic ones which caused me headaches and such. Speaking for myself, most of the time it had or usually has to do with the driver and making sure its working properly before using the tablet or graphic display monitor to do artwork. Still, I would recommend Turcom or Ugee.

    • Based on customer review rating alone and if you are definitely in need of a wireless graphics tablet then I would say either the Huion WH1409 or the XP-Pen Star 05. The latter is the cheapest of the two. The Huion 1060 Plus isn’t really wireless from what I can see. It just has a microSD card for extra storage. Same with the Ugee M708. Other than that, I would investigate what software she will use it with. Do you guys have Photoshop? If so then you don’t have much to worry about, but if you’re using something else you may need to check to see if the tablet runs well with those programs.

  4. I have the Turcom Tursion TS-6814, and I wanted to confirm that it doesn’t work with Mac OS Sierra. I didn’t realize this would happen until after I (finally) updated my OS. But I needed the newer OS to run certain programs, so now my tablet is useless until Turcom updates their drivers, if they ever do! Now I’m in the process of looking for a new tablet.

    • Of the two brands you have mentioned, I have used products from XP. So I would personally lean that way based on my experience with a graphic display monitor I used for review purposes. I didn’t have any problems with it, however, I only used it for about a month to review before installing another tablet to review. However, Huion’s H610 has been around for a while longer than the XP-Pens and you may find more user experience reviews around that can give you an idea of what you’re getting. I guess, again, I would probably lean towards the XP-Pen Star 03 based on experience with the brand.

  6. Hello, firstly, I love your comparison of tablets, it’s well organized and looks like you put a lot of work into it. I’ve been looking to buy a tablet for a few years now, but like a lot of other things, haven’t been able to get one until now. I’ve recently moved out into my first apartment and can order stuff online now (I had rather overprotective parents), however money is scarce and I’ll probably be digging a little into my grocery budget. I used to animate in Macromedia Flash 8, and I currently plan on animating in Pencil2d and anything other than flash. I have some bad opinions on adobe. I’m also interested in drawing in some open source software like Krita and Gimp. I run debian linux and windows. I understand what would happen if the resolution is too low, you would either run out of room on the active area, or jump pixels from the sensitivity being too high, It’s similar to a cheap mouse with low dpi, however I’ve never used a tablet before so I’m unsure what is too low of a resolution. wired or rechargeable would be best, as batteries are expensive, and I don’t care too much about small tablets, It can be small if it saves money. I would prefer one with an eraser on the stylus, but could overlook it if it saves a decent amount of money. My questions are, what would be the absolute cheapest tablet you think would still be usable, and after that, what tablet do you think would have the best quality per dollar spent. For the cheapest I was hoping to achieve a price somewhere near 40 canadian dollars, and for the average feel free to pick what you think is the best for the money. 40 cad is about 30 usd. Thank you in advanced for reading this comment, and sorry for its length. I don’t mean to be picky, however I figure it’s better than me being super unspecific and you having to choose something with nothing to go on.

    • Jacob,

      First, thanks for stopping by my site and leaving a comment and I apologize for the late reply.
      Second, based on your requirements of which I see operating system compatibility and cost as the major needs, I’m reluctant to make an absolute recommendation. Overlooking some of the affordable tablets I have listed, I think Huion and Turcom will fit your price requirement, but my concern is whether they will fit your technical needs. Especially if you plan to use the tablet on the Linux side. To be fair, all tablets, including Wacom, come with their technical issues so it would depend on how comfortable you are with troubleshooting and how much of a headache you want to deal with setting it up. This may seem like a vague response to your question, but in cheapness, Huion and Turcom seem to fall into that spectrum. In quality, of course the one that fits that requirement is Wacom, but it’s going to cost you in the price.

      Hope that helps,
      Roy

  7. I have a Huion H610 Pro. Ever since I installed Macs OS Sierra I have not bee able to map functions to the Hot Keys.
    For instance, I would like to assign “Show Desktop” to the K1 key. I would like to assign “Open Photoshop” to the S1 key.
    The drivers I had installed long ago gave me very intuitive ways to accomplish this.
    I have been in email contact with Huion’s tech support and they have not been able to help.

    December 30, 2016

    • Stewart,

      Sorry to hear this. It’s good information to know. If you can, keep us updated. My guess from the experience I do have working with technologies is Sierra is a fresh O/S Software and Huion has to update their installation/driver software to be compatible. However, a quick google search has led me to pros and cons on Sierra as well. Just remember nothing is perfect, this may sound like a cop-out, but it’s also a reality. Especially with technology. For one individual a piece of technology will seem flawless while another will have all kinds of difficulties. My hope is that Huion will seek to upgrade their drivers to produce a better compatibility for upcoming O/S software or help you out with your issues in the future.

  8. Hello Roy! im looking for a well tablet for beginning animation and for drawing i plan on using firealpaca or krita my is only about $60 i am planning on getting Wacom’s Intous Draw. Is this worth it? thanks for your help

    Isaiah

    December 23, 2016

    • Hello Isaiah,

      The Wacom Intous Draw is a decent choice and although I have not tried it with Firealpaca or Krita, it is more likely to work with them than others. Again, I have not tried it so I cannot verify that it will. But Wacom usually works with everything.

  9. HI Roy
    I’m trying to choose a table for my 13 year old son for Christmas, I literally came across these drawing tablets by accident and know nothing about them. Your article is interesting however I’m still confused what is best/most practical for him. He loves drawing so can you recommend something that would be good for him. My budget is around £60 – something that will last him for a while that he can take when travelling and isn’t complicated to use/set up but is the best on the market at this price. thank you

    anna

    December 11, 2016

    • Anna,

      Thanks for stopping by. Based on your criteria I would recommend the Wacom Intous Draw or Photo pen and touch. Both are under £60. If you’re looking for something a little larger you might want to look at the Ugee M807 and the Huion 8×5, both seem to have decent feedback. However, they may take a bit more to get set up than the Wacoms.

      Enjoy your Christmas,
      Roy

  10. Hi Roy! I am looking for a tablet! I would like to use it for animation, so I am looking for something that could take thousands of fairly simple drawings. Also, if possible, one that plugs INTO the computer would be nice, but not necessary (bluetooth and that other stuff is a little complicated). I have ZERO experience with drawing tablets, so something simple would be good. If this tablet came with a stylus/pen, that would be FANTASTIC, but once again, not necessary, and I could buy it separately. Size isn’t too important, but I don’t want something too tiny. Furthermore, I am not looking for something too high-end, so ones on the cheaper end would suffice. It would have to be compatible with OS X Yosemite, but it would be good for it to be compatible with other computer brands. I do not care if the pen needs a battery.

    I am sorry if you cannot find a tablet that meets this criteria (I know I sound really picky), but still, thank you for your time.

    • Hello,
      Thanks for your comment and first, I apologize if this comes off as telling you somethins you already know, but I am responding to some of the things you said. It is not my intention to be offensive.
      Many of the tablets listed here may meet your criteria. As far as whether it works with Mac OS X Yosemite, you may have to reach out to manufacturers to find that out after you’ve narrowed one down. Nearly all graphic tablets come with stylus/pens. However, tablets won’t take your sequence of illustrations and put them onto the computer to animate. You will need a specific scanner for that if you don’t have one and you are drawing your animated sequences traditionally and scanning them onto the computer to digitally put line art and/or color to them with your tablet. Considering you may be simply cutting out the traditional portion of your method and simply doing everything digitally I would recommend these two, however I have not used them: Parblo Coast 10 and XP-Pen Artist 10. They are small but generally $100 less than most Cintiq alternative tablets and not too high-end, but allow you to draw on the screen. If that is not a big issue for you, I would probably suggest anything from maybe Huion, Ugee or Wacom, with the latter probably falling more into criteria since it would relatively give you less headaches setting it up on a Mac. However, the downside is usually the only affordable Wacoms are usually the smaller ones as seen above. The Intous series and larger ones start to get a little pricey. For instance, a small Intous pro runs about $200 (as of 11/29/2016) and a large Intous Pro runs about $400 (as of 11/29/2016). However, considering Wacom has been on the market and you don’t have experience with graphic drawing tablets, it would give you less headaches. Otherwise, I would suggest pillaging through reviews and making your decision based on user experiences to determine your best option within the recommended drawing tablets here. Otherwise, I could make a final recommendation and what’s easy for me to set up, or where I would have more patience, would not be acceptable for you. I would prefer not to put you in that situation so I make general recommendations based off what you listed.

      Hope this helps,
      Roy

  11. What would be your recommendation for a tablet at around 150eur now that you are making updates to the page? Black friday is upon us and I’m looking for a tablet to use for rough sketching of UI-related stuff, not so much the drawing.

    November 24, 2016

    • I would look at anything Wacom, Huion, Ugee or XP-Pen, although I have yet to put up any tablets for the latter. I have used their XP-Pen Artist 22 Graphic monitor and it worked pretty well so I suspect their tablets will work pretty well as well.

      Roy

  12. Roy, We are looking into tablets for my son, he is an aspiring game designer. The tablets themselves are pretty straight forward. I am confused as to the software required to use them. I believe the higher end Wacoms come with software but what about the other brands? Is the included software any good? Buying Adobe or Corel can get pricey. Thanks

    Mike

    November 22, 2016

    • Mike, you can look into open source like FireAlpaca, InkScape, Krita, Paint.net (be careful with where you download this at), GIMP, Corel Painter Essentials and Blender (for 3D) to name a few. Of all of them I have used FireAlpaca, InkScape, GIMP (on Linux, although they have it for Mac and Windows now) and Blender. However, unfortunately in relation to expenses, if he does want to get into game design he will have to eventually learn whatever tools favored in the industry at the time. Eventually, but it would be good to just familiarize himself with general concepts, digital art, traditional art, etc.

      The downside here is some tablets can get funny with open source software. Stuff like Blender is well received in the community so people tend to make things work with it. Tablets can also come with their own software like Photoshop essentials/elements, etc. Lighter versions of the Adobe Photoshop and other software, but the downside is they may not function or have all of the tools as the full versions. Some come with their own graphic art software. There’s also Paintshop Pro by Corel, it’s been a while since I used it, but I recall it being relatively similar to Photoshop. It also looks like they’ve made some decent updates to the software. Again, just to name a few off the top of my head.

      Hope that helps,
      Roy

  13. I’m new to using tablets, but decided I would like to look into getting one for myself.
    I’m looking for a tablet on the cheaper side (below $100 preferably) that is:
    good quality
    good for doodling, lineart, painting, etc.
    Nothing animation or professional needed.
    Just simply wanting to be able to draw or paint whenever the mood strikes.

    Is there any of these tablets that you would suggest?
    Thanks for the advice! And this article is fantastic!

    Erin

    November 15, 2016

    • Erin,

      Hello, thanks for stopping by. In relation to your question it depends on what size you may want. If you don’t mind a small tablet, I would go for one of the Wacom Intous versions for under $100. However, while I haven’t used any of the smaller Ugee tablets, I have used their graphic monitor, the Ugee 2150. It worked well so it gives them some credibility so you could look at any one of those. It also depends on what type of software you may want to utilize as well and how tech savvy you are when it comes to wrestling with any quirks the device may have with software, etc. To be hones, Wacom isn’t even immune to problems in that area.

      Are you using Flash, Anime Studio, or something else for animation?
      Corel for painting?
      Or are you sticking with all Adobe products?
      Some tablets won’t act right with things like Alpaca and Paint Tool Sai, etc.
      I can say Wacom generally works with everything, but again, nothing is immune to technical problems.

      Let me know if this helps or if you have more information to add to give a narrower idea of what you may want to choose.

  14. I am interested in buying a drawing pad and so the “active area” seems to be important
    if there is NO trade-off with resolution LPI

    QUESTIONS/ recommendations:
    – “active area” is missing from your summary of drawing pad specifications
    – ease of understanding manual should be included where possible; perhaps the mfg will send
    you a manual that you can evaluate.

    Question:
    can a rechargeable battery be safely used on the drawing pen?
    again, the mfg may be eager to provide the info for you

    marty

    November 5, 2016

    • Marty,

      Sometimes the active area information is hard to track down. Don’t ask me why some manufacturers don’t list this so I try to maintain a consistent list of specifications for each tablet. If I put active area up for one, but can’t find it for another tablet, people will wonder why it’s missing for the latter. So I opted not to list it. Generally speaking if a tablet offers a larger size active area I will list that in one of the advantages of the tablet. However, if a tablet is already small, I will list that in the disadvantages. But tablet size is more so a personal preference so I list it mostly for informative purposes.

      As to manuals, yes, those usually come from the manufacturer. All manuals aren’t equal, some are helpful and some are entirely worthless. It’s really hit or miss. As far as rechargeable battery in the pens, I would speculate this is possible if the battery fits. Rest assured tho, most battery charged pens do not drain the batteries fast unless there’s some type of problem or the design of the battery chargeable pen is bad and it does that right out of the box. Again, this seems to be a rare issue and an issue where it is a problem on arrival rather than a design issue in manufacturing.

      I’ll say this also. Choosing a tablet is a lot like choosing anything else. Weigh the pros and cons. The big name in the tablet industry, Wacom, still develops tablets in which some people find issues with them.

      Hope this helps,
      Roy

  15. Hi, Roy
    I’m looking for a tablet but since I Live in Lebanon, the shipping price is abot 15$ from amazon.
    so could you advise me based on your experience with tablets and brands, what brand/tablet to get, under the price of 70$?
    thank you in advance.

    Jason

    June 22, 2016

    • Hello Jason,

      I apologize for the delayed reply. I would suggest you look into the Ugee M708: http://amzn.to/28TUbSe for an off-brand tablet. If you can spare a few extra dollars past $70, I would suggest, considering you are in Lebanon, looking into the Wacom’s Small Intuos line, but they are very small: http://amzn.to/28Z5zwP. Lastly, I would suggest looking into a refurbished or old Wacom version with the downside being you won’t have technical support from the company since these versions are no longer provided by Wacom: http://amzn.to/28Tbu0x and http://amzn.to/28U2oFJ. XP-Pen and Parblo, although I have yet to update this page with those brands, get good reviews but I did not suggest those since they are newer brands on the market and I’m not sure where you would order from in regards to Amazon. I mean like Amazon UK, etc. So I’m not certain if those companies will provide shipment to you through Amazon service. My advice would be to take a little bit of time and make sure whatever tablet you order that the company will provide you support where you are.

      Hopefully this helps and sorry if it doesn’t answer as much as you hoped, but thanks for asking,
      Leroy.

        based on your reviews it was between that and ugee m1000L

        and my gf and i thought that the highest LPI would give better quality for posters etc…so we went for m708

        i will send a review of it when i receive it but so far i hope ive made the right choice…seeing how many huion people had problems with theirs for being outdated and so did the wacom people… altho i had a wacom before and it was not very convenient…i guess the pen wasnt working or something but i lost the pen and they;re very pricy too

        so wacom:pricey for nothing(to me at least)

          Thanks for the comment. I hope it works out for you. Yeah, send me a review of how you feel about it. I used the most recent Ugee graphic monitor and after a bit of tweaking with installation it’s been working well for me. I have a review for it in the works for the Alternative Cintiq Graphic Monitor page. But like I said, it’s been performing fine since I got it installed, but then again it’s not the m708 tho.
